Almost 5,000 residents have downloaded Broadland District Council’s bin collection app since it launched last month.

The app keeps people informed about collections and recycling information specific to their address, so nobody should ever have to ask “When is bin day?”

Judy Leggett, cabinet member for environment, said: “I’m delighted to see so many downloads in just the first month of our app.

“This is a really easy way for our residents to receive up-to-date information about waste and bin collections, which is particularly handy for bank holidays.

“Having this platform where you can receive all bin guidance in one place is a great way to keep residents updated and help us push forward with our environmental targets.”

The app displays the bin collection days for your address, notifies you of updates or disruptions with collections, and provides information on what you can and cannot recycle.

You can also set a reminder to put your bins out, print your own collection calendar, and play a waste-sorting game.

The launch of this app is just one of the ways Broadland District Council is working to make recycling information quicker and easier to access, and further increase its current recycling rate of 50pc.

t The app is free on the App Store or Google Play by searching Bins BDC.
